Step back in time to the picture-perfect town of Ferndale, California. Nicknamed the Victorian Village for its fantastically preserved architecture, Ferndale is a vibrant, living postcard with a genuinely welcoming feel.

A still-thriving dairy industry led to the construction of Ferndale’s famous Victorian homes and gloriously ornate storefronts—some of the most beautiful in the West. Transport yourself to a bygone era with a stroll down lamppost-lined Main St, where you’ll find an authentic general store, candy shops, blacksmith, independent boutiques, saloons and museums.

Ferndale pairs the best of the past with modern comforts and luxuries, from world-class accommodations to acclaimed restaurants, including some of the best historic lodging and dining options in the country. Explore the outdoors with a hike in Russ Park forest and bird sanctuary, just blocks from Main St, or a visit to nearby Centerville Beach and the Lost Coast Headlands. A scenic setting amid peaceful farmland coupled with a convenient proximity to many of the activities and natural attractions in Humboldt County makes Ferndale the perfect place to stay during your redwoods vacation.
